Who is News.Net?

News.Net is a unique, high-scale network of news websites providing fact-based journalism to many communities that have been starved of trusted media. We provide international, national, state, regional and local news that is free of political agenda and commercial bias and is freely accessible.


News.Net offers a productive platform on which important societal issues can be debated sensibly; and a safe environment in which advertisers can promote their brands.


Our Purpose

To provide an independent, digital news network offering trusted sources of reporting and coverage of stories, delivered locally. To be a trusted and safe place for informed discussion, explanation, and services. To reconnect businesses and customers through local relationships, according to their needs.

Why we exist

Starting in 2022, News.Net will roll out to 1300 markets in all states and territories in metropolitan and regional Australia.


The depth and breadth of News.Net’s fact-based local, regional, state, national and international news stories will touch the lives of many.


News.Net fosters a safe environment for intelligent discussion of community affairs, promotes business and innovation, and engenders pride in where we live.
